Doprinos Mate Ujevića razvoju hrvatske bibliografije

  • Mate Ujević, Croatian writer, lexicographer and encyclopaedist contributed significantly to the development of bibliographical work in Croatia. As his role as a meritorious Croatian bibliographer has not been worthily evaluated, on the occasion of his birth's centenary the author intended to investigate the available published and other sources and attempt to evaluate his main bibliographic achievements and merits. In the field of bibliography Ujević acted as a moving force, organiser, performer of activities and educator, especially during his riper years. He encountered the necessity of recreating the missing Croatian retrospective bibliographies as a young man in his late thirties, while preparing the edition of the Croatian Encyclopaedia. Then he immediately pleaded for the organizing of a systematic compilation of retrospective and current bibliographies of printed books. Although during a shorter period he himself actively took part in the preparation of the Croatian retrospective bibliography of books and the current bibliography of articles in Croatian periodicals, his main bibliographic work is the great retrospective "Bibliography of studies, articles and literary works of the Lexicographic Institute" which he founded and edited from 1951 to his death in 1967. This rich retrospective bibliography of articles published in the South Slavic serial publications from the end of the 18th century to 1945 is, due to a wide selection of serial titles and its excellent indexes, almost unique in the world. In its realisation Ujević managed to accumulate an outstanding quantity of high quality bibliographic material. As an excellent organiser he distributed the collection of data in major libraries in Zagreb, Ljubljana, Belgrade, Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Rijeka, Pula, Sarajevo, Subotica, Novi Sad and Skopje. The main editor's office was in Zagreb, and the two additional major co-ordinating centres in Ljubljana and Belgrade. The published 15 volumes of the Bibliography include to this day: literature (7 vols.), history (4 vols.), fine arts (1 vol.) and music (2 vols.) and are irreplaceable sources of bibliographic data to numerous researchers in Croatia and abroad. 1n the last decade of his life Ujević was engaged in teaching bibliography within the postgraduate programme in library and information studies of the University of Zagreb. With this activity he rounded up his prolific activity and contribution to the field of Croatian bibliography.
